Robo cars. Really?

Saw one of those robo cars being tested the other day.  It had that distinctive rotating thing on top.  Plus it said test car on it.  I was so so tempted to mess with it.  Get in front of it and slam on the brakes.  Get behind it and tailgate it.  Get beside it and crowd it.  But I didn't.  I don't care about that sort of stuff. I want to know about other things. There are plenty of unanswered questions I have.  First, how does it know if a police car is trying to stop it?  
Can it identify a flagman?  
If some joker replaced the 45 mph sign with a 90 mph sign, would it take off and go 90?  
What does it do if someone's shooting at it? If someone's shooting at me, I'm getting the heck out of there. What if it just stops and turns on its flashers? Turning on flashers solves everything.  
If a draw bridge is up, will it stop or drive you right into a river?
If something like Bigfoot is standing in the road, what will it do?
Can it drive through Jack in the Box and get you tacos, or will it just drive pas the pickup window and resume its course?

These are the kinds of things I want to know.
